hello friends who get their T or E through shots
if you get an itchy swelling at your injection site it could be an allergic reaction! not to your hormones, just the needle! trauma to the skin, like needles, can cause your body to release histamine, causing an allergic-type reaction. I used to get the itchy bump after every single shot, so I started taking antihistamines (like bendaryl) 30 minutes or an hour before I did my shot and it stopped happening. it might be worth trying if it’s a problem you have!
if you get the itchy bump where you do your shot it’s most likely nothing to worry about. if it gets darker, bigger/more spread out, starts streaking, or gets very warm to the touch, call your doctor for advice. but that’s pretty unusual!
